    Twitter user @BWilks2001 today posted a series of screenshots (via AppleInsider) claimed to be from Apple's forthcoming Final Cut Pro X and associated Motion 5 release, potentially offering a further glimpse at what users can expect in the next-generation professional video production suite.


    The screenshots are primarily from Motion 5 and reveal such aspects as the Project Browser, rigging functions, and color adjustment functionalities. According to the poster, a revamped version of Color is also said to be on the way, although no screenshots were provided.


    The screenshots have since been pulled from TwitPic, with the poster claiming or at least assuming that Apple is responsible for the removal, although there appears to be no confirmation of that. The authenticity of the images has also not been verified.


    Apple demoed Final Cut Pro X back in April at the Final Cut Pro User Group Network SuperMeet held in conjunction with the National Association of Broadcasters' NAB Show 2011 in Las Vegas. At the time, the company announced that Final Cut Pro X would launch via the Mac App Store in June priced at $299, but did not provide any details on other Final Cut Studio apps such as Motion and Color. Subsequent reports had indicated that the version of Final Cut Pro X demoed at the event was "nowhere near" the final version and that more info on other Final Cut Studio applications would be forthcoming in due time.

    The Twitter account no longer exists, so chances are these are legitimate. :)

    Hopefully like Lion, FC Pro will also be $29. :D

    Apple could price everything at $29 and call it the i29 price plan.

    Man, more news on FCPX can't come soon enough. Heck, the release can't come soon enough. I'm tired of FCP7 chugging along on a fourth of my cores and a fourth of my RAM.

    I also had a clip collision that I didn't notice yesterday, and after the 30 minutes it took to fix everything when I did notice it, I wept. It's time to move on, Apple. Sooner than later, please.

    That looks really nice. I've found myself leaning on After Effects more recently, but this could entice me to start using Motion again.

    Do we have a specific release date? I am too antsy, excited and worried... June is way too vague for me.

    What a sad state of affairs for me an my wallet. My initial reaction to nearly every Apple rumor I've read recently has been exactly the same:

    Hurry up Apple! When can I pay for this? I want to pay for this and use it right now!

    Do people even read the article they are commenting on:
    "...the company announced that Final Cut Pro X would launch via the Mac App Store in June priced at $299, but did not provide any details on other Final Cut Studio apps such as Motion and Color"

    I am very excited about this release. Maybe even as much as I was with version 1 or when RT rendering was introduced (I think version 3). I'm actually excited to edit again when lately I've been finding it to be a daily drag. I feel like I can spend so much more time on being creative and so much less time on the monotony and slowness of the idle computing power.

    I just hope that it isn't missing features compared to what we have now. I wonder when in June it will be available?

    Apple has twitter in their pocket now. Expect swift takedowns like this from now on.

    can't wait for the release. I just hope you have the option of buying disc. Imagine the download time with all the templates :eek:

    Nice! The anticipation grows. Wonder if Apple leaked these on purpose to get us talking since they haven't given us any more information since the sneak peak. Like others, I say bring it on!

    I can't wait to get this. The much more affordable state of $299 means we can expect a new generation of indecent films, which can out rank Hollywood.

    (P.s. I think Apple should bring back Independant as a category on iTunes)

    About time

    This is ridiculous waiting this long....I mean it's June already! Great to see something at last. If it's still a June release then why won't Apple give us some information? Also great to here Motion will be around.....I hope.

    The industry moved on to Nuke. And it's so much better too.

    I dont know... I think if anything the reaction since NAB has proven that a lot of people can't handle partial information. What was clearly stated as a "Sneak Peak" has been lambasted for what they DIDN'T show [existing features] versus what they did [new features and UI methodology].

    I honestly think Apple's best move at this point is just to release the software to the AppStore with a large information page at apple.com. That way people can see the full feature set for themselves and have it ready and available for download.

    There have been points in the last 2 months I wish they hadn't done the NAB sneak. It would have saved us all from a lot of armchair quarterbacking and FUD.

    :mad: I know what you mean. I've always hated some of the arcane UIs/behavior that some editing programs employ. I'm really excited for FCX - looks like it improves on nearly everything that's irked me. The process of capturing, organizing, editing, and rendering all looks so much more streamlined than before. That's a great thing, because that means more brainpower for telling your story.

    Man, Final Cut X, iOS 5, Lion, iCloud...this is a great summer for Apple fans! All that and a new spaceship landing in Cupertino :D

    I'm really hoping that Motion becomes more like After Effects. Hope it's gonna turn more towards visual effects. Motion thus far has been more for motion graphics and text effects, at least in my opinion.

    This is impossible. Apple's not supposed to care about Pro apps anymore, just iToys.

    Why? Use Nuke - it's far more advanced than Shake ever was.

    This might be a surprise, but After Effects is also primarily used for motion graphics. There are some shops using it for post, but the vast majority of post is done in Nuke or Fusion, running on Linux.
